News today that three citizen groups are going to do their own cost-benefit analyses of the super school planned for Ginninderra.
Katy Gallagher says the community feedback regarding the school is now “more positive than negative” — damning by faint praise? However she also says that if the community wants her to abandon the idea, she will.
She does make the interesting point that if the government gives up on this super school idea, that in a few years’ time people will be turning round and wanting to know why the area’s education is underfunded and underresourced — because of there being few kids in the schools in the area (it does seem to be something of a catch-22 situtation).
Interestingly, I know a few people who go to Ginninderra High and they have all either moved or started making arrangements to move schools because of being messed around and not knowing what’s going to happen to Ginninderra High in the future.
